Volvo Photo Locations Part 82
Volvo ÖV 4 is the first car built by Volvo. The designation ÖV4 stands for , “Öppen Vagn 4 cylindrar” in Swedish, which means Open Carriage 4 cylinders. The model ÖV4 was often referred to as “Jakob” but that was just a name for one of the 10 pre-series ÖV4 that was ready on July 25 Jakob’s name-day. All 10 prototypes were assembled in Stockholm at the company AB Galco, Hälsingegatan 41 where Gustav Larson worked at that time. Only one of the 10 pre-series cars manufactured during 1926 was saved for posterity and is housed in Volvo Museum, in Gothenburg, Sweden.
